This April, Gaucho will be hosting a series of dinners with world-renowned Argentinian restaurant Tegui. From 9th -11th April, highly celebrated Chef Patron Germán Martitegui will curate an exclusive six course menu to be paired with some of Argentina’s most exciting wines, chosen by independent Argentine sommelier, Sorrel Moseley-Williams.
With an innovative menu showcasing Martitegui’s signature style of cooking, the exclusive dinners will be a oneoff chance to experience his food in the UK.
Tickets will be available for an exclusive evening on 9th April with Martitegui, where guests will enjoy a stunning tasting menu whilst dining with the man himself. Attendees will have the chance to hear his fascinating story and about the dishes served, with tickets costing £160pp (including dinner and wines). Spaces to this dinner are extremely limited and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The tasting menu will also be available on 10th and 11th April, when Germán and his team will be taking over service.
Martitegui’s unique approach to cooking has contributed to contemporary Argentine cuisine being put on the map and earned Tegui its place as number 11 on Latin America’s 50 Best, and on the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list this year. His dishes and ingredients used are inspired by the 23 provinces of Argentina and complement Gaucho’s cuisine perfectly. Guests can expect to see dishes famously served at Tegui, for example his signature dish of grilled oysters, strawberries and seaweed.
Martitegui takes pride in using local produce and his passion for cooking has resulted in numerous awards including The Chefs’ Choice Awards 2017 and Best Restaurant in Argentina 2018. He gained an extensive knowledge and expertise when working with Argentine culinary legends, including pastry chef Beatriz Chomnalez and fire-starting king Francis Mallmann.
The collaboration will come as part of a series of guest-chef led events, in Gaucho’s new focus on celebrating its Latin-American heritage. Established 25 years ago, Gaucho has evolved its classic offering of prime Argentinian steaks to incorporate new dishes which highlight modern Latin American food and culture. Martitegui explained his reasons for wanting to take part in the collaboration: “I am a huge fan of the Gaucho brand, and myself and my team of chefs are incredibly excited to come back to London and welcome guests in such an iconic restaurant.”
